“Now, if you need anything don’t hesitate to call. Your cell phone is in your bag and if that doesn’t work you just come to the front office and they’ll let you call. They know about some of the incidences and of course there is yesterday with Meir.” She spoke with urgency and then she paused to reach out with her hands and hold my face in her small, delicate grasp. “I just want us to be happy Jun.” She sounded so sad that it just broke my heart. I reached down and hugged her so tightly that I lifted her off the ground and she started to laugh. “Jun! Put me down!” I smiled widely and placed her on her feet before kissing her on the forehead.
“Don’t worry; I’ll try to make it work this time around, though I didn’t get off on such a good impression yesterday.” She smiled.
“Jun, you’ve never had true problems making friends, you’re just really good at making enemies, like your Father.” She gave me another hug and went back to the car and drove off while I sighed and headed into the school. Once there I was met by Wayne who had this cocky smirk on his face like he had caught me in a sticky situation and was going to tell everyone he could.
“So you’re a Mama’s boy?” He spoke the words as if they were a disgrace while I treated them like a prized possession.
“Yeah. You got a problem with it Wayne? ‘Cause honestly I could care less. I love my Mom and I am certainly not afraid to admit it. Don’t you?” He blinked at my question while I stared at him expectantly. When he didn’t say anything I urged him on with my eyes until he finally spoke.
“What? You actually want me to answer?” I nodded and he grunted. “Yeah, I love my Mom.” I smiled.
